A man who was found injured by a reservoir was rescued by members of the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team (BMRT) yesterday, Thursday.

Crews were sent to Turton and Entwistle Dam yesterday, Thursday, after reports a 62-year-old man had been injured near the water’s surface.

The team was contacted by North West Ambulance Service at 1.37pm and asked to help locate, treat and help move the casualty to safety.

BMRT team leader Steve Fletcher said the cause of the man’s injuries was unknown but he was suffering from hypothermia when his team arrived.

A BMRT spokesman said: “Once we had access to the track with our vehicles, the casualty was located and placed in our response vehicle to keep warm while he was treated before being transferred to an ambulance.

“We wish the injured a speedy recovery.”

Mr Fletcher added: “There were three members of the public who stopped to help the man and called 999 a second time while we were there to help. We would like to thank them.”

A total of 13 team members were on hand to assist with the incident, which took approximately two hours and 45 minutes to complete.

The North West Ambulance Service has been contacted for further information about the incident.
